Top 5 resources for Dyslexia awareness month
Date 28th Sep 2022
With Dyslexia awareness month only a few days away, we’d like to highlight just how exceptional 2022 has been for the dyslexic community:
Firstly, 2022 was the year that LinkedIn, the world’s largest careers platform, added Dyslexic Thinking as a skill on their platform. Now, over 10,000 people have proudly added Dyslexic Thinking as a skill on LinkedIn.
Secondly, the term “Dyslexic Thinking” has now entered the dictionary. You can view the entry here.
